Players were allowed into Redskins Park on Tuesday for the first time in almost three months, and more than a dozen showed up to meet with coaches and work out.

“It’s been a long offseason, a long process,” center Casey Rabach said. “It’s been rough on everybody, no doubt. It’s great to back. Great reception this morning. It was just good to be back concentrating on football.”


The list of players who came to team headquarters Tuesday includes but is not limited to:

OLB Lorenzo Alexander

WR Anthony Armstrong

WR Brandon Banks

CB Kevin Barnes

QB John Beck

TE Chris Cooley

TE Fred Davis

DB DeJon Gomes

DL Jeremy Jarmon

CB Reggie Jones

G Will Mongtomery

OL Clint Oldenburg

OLB Brian Orakpo

RB Evan Royster

C Casey Rabach

TE Logan Paulsen

Players’ focused on building momentum for the start of training camp on Thursday. After the entire offseason program was postponed, how quickly players sharpen their play will be intensely scrutinized.

“We speak a lot about continuity on the offensive line, and that’s something you usually build during the offseason and through training camp,” Rabach said. “We’ve got to kind of accelerate that this year.”

“For the guys who have been here [in previous seasons], it shouldn’t take too long,” Armstrong added. “It’s going to be the rookies who have to catch up, the undrafted free agents. The new guys really have to get up to speed. It will take them a while. But I think at least being able to throw a little bit and jump right into the offense, I’ll not really miss a beat.”
